about where the u.s. didn't -- where the u.s. student -- we never had a conservative actor -- a concerted effort of a ranking system. the report does. it is almost entirely prestige and important. in its judgments as opposed to outcomes. we need to think more about how to deal with this problem. the public university has the system of accountability. but that is not everybody, of course. it's caught some way so we're trying to adjust its. but how to half in place incentives systems to focus on outputs is a big deal. during the brief period of time, i joined with the presidents at columbia and stanford. he understood exactly how distorted that rating system was. but then several days later the people told him how much that issue generated in terms of profits and if he wanted to stay its editor, he better leave it alone. >> here again, the role of the president comes in. he was very disturbed because the u.s. rankings were falling. day asked him to go out and drum up more applicants so the universe would look more selective. he said to them, i'm not going to go to rural areas

week before house lawmakers concerning the deadly attack on u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. molly henneberg is live in washington with the very latest on this story. >> molly: now that he stepped down, general david petraeus will not testify this up coming week at house and senate intelligence xheet committee hearings investigating the benghazi. some on capitol hill they do want to hear from him in the future. >> i hope we don't have to subpoena a four-star general and former c.i.a. director. i hope he would come voluntarily. if he won't, he will be subpoenaed. >> molly: petraeus who had been in charge of the c.i.a. since september 2011 has said the attack was in response to a protest over an anti-islam video. one g.o.p. congressman is asking questions about the timing of his departure. >> it comes days before he is set to testify before the house intelligence committee. it really begs the question what did the f.b.i. know and whether did they know it? how long did they sit on the information? i recall that petraeus briefed the senate about what happened in benghazi. did he have t
and outline the next steps i will take. as background, puerto rico has been a u.s. territory since 1898. the island is home to 3.7 million american citizens who cannot vote for president, are not represented in the senate, and elect a nonvoting member to the house. federal law is supreme in puerto rico but its residents are treated unequally under many federal programs. voters were first asked whether they want puerto rico to remain a territory. over 1.7 million people answered. which is about 75% of registered voters on the island. 54% said they did not want the current status to continue while 46% said they did. voters were then asked to express their preference among the three viable alternatives to the current status. statehood, free association and independence. over 1.3 million people chose an option. 61% voted for statehood. 33% voted for free association. and 5.5% voted for independence. in addition, 472,000 voters did not provide an answer. this marked the first time voters were directly asked whether they want puerto rico to remain a territory. one of the two main political pa

at the president, the news media and each other. tempers flare as congress probes the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. you're about to hear a tape of senator john mccain's contentious exchange with cnn. also, we've seen pictures like this of the benghazi compound on september 11th, but today for the first time lawmakers are seeing surveillance video of the assault that killed the united states ambassador, three other americans. i'll talk to one u.s. senator about what that video shows. and mitt romney's speaking out about his election loss blaming what he calls gifts -- that's a quote, gifts, the president people gave to people who voted for him. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> tempers flaring on capitol hill. senator john mccain lashing out at one of our cnn producers who questioned why he was missing a key hearing on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. mccain has been a sharp critic of the president and his administration complaining lawmakers are not getting enough information. and when asked why he missed that meeting today, he
and democratic attorney general. one of our two u.s. senators was an independent, elected twice. an independent missed winning the governorship by 15,000 votes over a million passed in 1973. we were the ticket splitting capital of america. we have cents settled back into partisan voting with the rest of america. this is a very polarized era. having said that, when you have close elections you still have a band of voters who will mix and match on the ballot, either because they want to mix and match or they are simply reacting to the individual candidates. in the case of romney and kaine, i have personally been in situations where straw votes were taken among large groups and you generally find you have 3, 4, 5% of the romney boaters picking tim kane for various reasons. some of these romney voters are more moderate republicans and the like tim kane better than his opponent. are there similar voters for obama and george allen? i am sure there are. i never met one of them. but i will say this -- george allen, despite what happened in 2006, he has won from time to time in running for statewide off
a seat. more women got elected to the u.s. senate than at any time in u.s. history. the republican presidential nominee and vice presidential nominee both lost their home states. missouri and montana and west virginia chose democratic governors. west virginia chose its first gay state legislature. so did north dakota. west virginia and north dakota? yeah, seriously. joe lieberman's old seat went to a real democrat in connecticut. the proportion of young people voting compared to 2008, it went up. same with african-americans, up from 2008. same with latinos, up from 2008, not down, up. if you are a liberal or if you are rooting for the democrats, last night was a very, very, very big night. and, oh, yeah, this happened. president barack obama, yes, will go down in history as our nation's first african-american president. but he will also go down in history as the most successful democratic presidential candidate since fdr. president clinton got re-elected too, i know, but only barack obama got re-elected with not just big electoral college margins, but also with majority wins in the
is a distinguished former advisor -- current advisor to many government agencies, u.s. leaders and diplomats, and he is a prolific and best-selling author. let me quote from the top of his web site at the university of maryland where he is the anwar sadat professor of peace. "i have always believed good scholarship can be relevant and cons consequential for public policy. it is possible to affect public policy without being an advocate. to be passionate about peace without losing analytical power. to be moved by what is just while conceding that no one has a monopoly on justice." i think our other scholars and our world affairs council college shares that sentiment. jinan reed is a associate professor of sociology and health at duke university, she's a carnegie scholar and an associate director. she is half libyan, spent much of her childhood in libya, and thanks to the arab spring she has had a touching and moving reunion with her father after many, many years. i owe you great thanks for a zesty presentation two months ago, and of course, we won't go into it, but i also owe you dinner. professor ma
. meanwhile, u.s. officials moving to deescalate the rising violence, advising israel not to enter gaza, fearing it could draw egypt in to that consulate. and joining us the consulate general, good to see you ambassador. >> thank you for having me. >> dave: the latest what we just said. benjamin netanyahu told the cabinet he's ready to significantly be expand its operation in gaza. is israel prepared for a ground invasion into gaza and what could incite that? >> look the mandate from the inception was to remove this strategic threat posed by thousands of rockets on israelis-- innocent israelis paralyzing our entire southern region. so the goal was to remove that threat and the mandate given to the defense forces from the government was not limited in time nor in scope. so in other words, the possibility of israel moving in with ground forces certainly exists, it depends how the operation develops on the ground. right now, hamas is firing rockets. hamas is still displaying a tremendous degree of aggression towards israel and the purpose of this operation is to eliminate that threat. >> m
the panel and we'll see you the reception. >> next a look at the changes in the u.s. senate following tuesday elections. then the president obama obama and speaker bainer and then the polling during the 2012 presidential campaign. >> tomorrow president obama will be at arlington national cemetery to participate in the ceremony at the tom of the unknown and a remembrance ceremony. live coverage begins at 11:00 a.m. eastern on c-span. >> 2013 should be the year we solve our debt reform. i'm proposing we avert the fiscal cliff and 2013 is finally the year our government comes to grips with the problems that are facing us. >> i'm open to compromise and new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenge. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. >> the new elected congress starts in january but the congress has to do work in a lame duck session and they have to work on the federal deficit raising the debt ceil

more on this news throughout the day. iran march deadline the u.s. says for iran to start agreeing and compromising a little bit with the u.n. watchdog group and the nuclear agency. jon, you have more breaking news now? jon: that's right, jenna. according to the reuters news agency and several local reports former u.s. president george h.w. bush is in methodist hospital in houston right now. in fact, ktrk television in houston is reporting that he has actually been there for six days to be treated for bronchitis. we're told the bronchitis has been handled but he has a lingering cough. george h.w. bush was born june 1924. if i am doing my math correctly it means he is 88 years old now. there of course his wife, former first lady bash a bush. he is always very vigorous. remember him parachuting i believe it was his 80th birthday. he was the youngest aviator in the u.s. navy back during world war ii. george h.w. bush, being treated for bronchitis at a houston hospital now. we certainly wish him a speedy recovery. jenna: more on all that breaking news as we get it. in the meantime some
from carrying fuel between u.s. ports. that should help. but the white house said there is been no decision whether to release oil from strategic reserves. johnathan hunt is live bay bridge, brooklyn tonight. if the tankers are on the way, how long until the fuel gets to the people who need? >> it's still going to be some time. whatever officials say about the help being on the way. the problem here is that new york harbor where i'm standing right now has been closed for the very good reason that they were very worried about the sort of debris that might be in the waters and might pose a threat to the shipping. but now you have the tankers that are waiting outside the harbor. first of all, you have to get the barges to them, then you have to go through the long process of pumping all the gas and oil from the tankers to the barges. then they have to get back in here to the terminals. but nonetheless, governor cuomo of new york said nobody panic, help is coming. listen. >> there is no reason to panic. there's no reason for anxiety. this is -- we understand why there was a shortage
. the election did not change the balance of power on capitol hill. democrats they still controlled the u.s. senate. the republicans still controlled the house of representatives. coming up at 5:15 what that means for lawmakers moving ahead and for gridlock in washington. >> governor jerry brown is claiming victory for what he calls the california dream. voters have approved proposition 30 his education tax initiative. you can see on the screen. 54% to 46%. and that is with -- actually that is all of the precincts reporting out. tara moriarty is in san francisco with what the vote means for california's public schools. >> reporter: we are standing in front of mission high school. and it is one of the oldest in fact the oldest high school in san francisco and it's struggling but the students here may now benefit from prop 30 passage. san francisco voters overwhelmingly supported the measure as did folks in alameda and santa cruz. they all raise the states sales tax by a quarter of a cent for four years and increase income taxes for people that make $250,000 a year by up to three percentage p
, and one of the topics that came up quite a bit was the attacks on the u.s. embassy and while those of us here that might obviously highlight the need for the securities sector reform i feel like a lot of tunisian actors interpret things very different and to some the less says that we need stronger security forces and that some of the changes, some of the modest changes we might see as positive and the very modest direction of the reform over the past year are seen by some as a cause for the week security forces and the call for incidents like the attacks on the embassies. if you can comment on this tension and how to address that. >> the iron fist notes the outrage. you want to jump in on this? >> sure. i mean, first of all i would sort of like to the secure a sector reform and egypt would weaken the security service more than it already is because there's been very little security sector reform as i don't see evidence of that. but also some of these the assumption that you are necessarily going after the leaders inside the security sector or security sector reform i think is a misconce

successfully to defend itself against hamaz rockets. now the u.s. military wants an iron dome of its own. jennifer griffin is live from the pentagon. could the iron dome protect u.s. bases overseas for instance, jennifer? >> reporter: it probably could. the army has a system but it works differently shooting multiple round of bullets rather than missiles at incoming mortars and rockets. missile defense can be very expensive. $90,000 per rocket for instance fired by the iron dome system. yesterday at the pentagon defense secretary panetta received from the defense minister of israel a mold of a tamir missile, part ever the iron dome system that worked so well during the gaza conflict. the u.s. army is investigating buying an iron dome-type system. we already invested $270 million in sealing the dome. they sealed it in record time, three years, despite many skeptics in israel as well as in the pentagon, jon. jon: if we helped fund the system, and our technology, presumably is part of it, why not just buy an iron dome from israel complete? >> reporter: it's a good question. we've learned th

information on the deadly terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. what the administration knew weeks in advance. it is all "happening now." jon: good morning to you right now on this thursday as we get some ominous news. more than 70 people are dead now in the aftermath of one the worst storms in recent history. from the east coast really to the great lakes, americans are struggling to try to get back to normal life but the trauma and damage from superstorm sandy will linger for a long time to come. good morning i'm john scott. jenna: everything is secondary to the families that lost so much. jon: there is so much misery out there. jenna: i'm glad you're with us. i'm jenna lee. new york city first. more than 30 storm-related deaths happened here. the city restoring limited mass transit service today. major tunnels remain impasseable. you see in the top left corner of your screen is a tunnel there. gridlock is growing problem in the city when it comes to traffic, simply getting around. in new jersey, dwindling fuel is up price are triggering long lines there. some people without power

[ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with n
hundreds of people have blocked the u.s. embassy, preventing people from kochling and going. they say the u.s. embassy is not threatened and diplomatic business will return to normal once the crowds thin. >>> security base where army private bradley manning was once held says he was not pressured to keep manning under a high-level lockup under constant watch. manning, accused of leaking classified documents to wikileaks was tortured behind bars. he may take the stand in his own defense later this week. >>> first day of a whole new life for two lucky winners. they have this combination of winning numbers, two tickets sold in arizona and missouri will split the jaw-dropping jackpot. nearly $580 million. just outside of atlanta, no big celebrations there, right? >> reporter: no big celebrations here. not for me. not for you. i know you're there. had you won, you probably wouldn't be in today. we know the reason we're here in mapleton is because this is a gas station that actually sold a $116 million powerball ticket. but this jackpot far exceeds that at $588 million. the reason it got so high is
that tuesday. then on friday afternoon, i received word that the u.s. supreme court had granted a review on a petition by governor bush at the time to review the decision that we had made on the 21st. we had also had a crucial decision in the matter that we had made on thursday, thanksgiving day, having to do with the miami dade county recount. host: that decision was? guest: that we denied a petition for the court to order the canvassing board to continue a recount. canvassing board had made a decision on the wednesday night before thanksgiving to not continue at their account because they determine that there was not enough time within our extended deadline in which to continue and vote and we count the votes in miami dade county. they had sorted some 14,000 votes out that they considered had not been counted by the machines. getgore team treid ied to the court to come in. we cannot overlook the discretion that the canvassing board had decided to not continue the cal. we denied that petition. that was on thursday. the u.s. supreme court the next day granted review and set a briefing sc
television provider. >> now, a discussion on the impact of tuesday's election from the u.s. senate. this is about 45 pence. -- this is about 45 minutes. host: ira shapiro is the author of "the last great senate." he is here to talk to was about the issues facing the senate coming up in the next edition of the senate. welcome to the program. guest: is good to be here. host: tell us a bit about the book. the title, the last great senate. what was it about the folks who were in that senate, the class of '62? who were the big guys in that class and what made them part of the last great senate? guest: i said in the book that america had a great senate from the early 1960's through 1980, a group of people who were focused on the national interests and were in the forefront of every issue facing the country. it is the senate of hubert humphrey, howard baker, robert and ted kennedy, robert dole and many others. they were an unusual group and they were triggered, in my estimation, by their war experience, the need for dealing with the cold war, and a progressive impulse that focused on some
prefer to see him executed. in fact, the u.s. attorney got up and said that he heard from many of these victims and their families who said they all -- all of the folks he said he heard from were happy or satisfied i should say, i don't want to use the term happy, but satisfied with the sentence of life without the possibility of parole. we do have just a few moments ago congressman ron barber, who worked in gabby giffords' office and succeeded her in office to fulfill the remaining part of her term came out and spoke. here's what he said he said to mr. loughner in court. >> i turned to mr. loughner and said "i hold you -- hold no hatred for you, but i'm very, very angry and sick at heart about what you did and the hurt you have imposed on all of us." i told him he must now live with this burden and he'll never see outside of a prison again. >> reporter: politics not far away from this tragedy, wolf. congressman barber running for re-election in the vote that just concluded, they're still counting the votes here in arizona to see if he's going to retain that seat. also, a lot o
'm announcing my decision as to which party, if any i will soothe with in my work here in the u.s. senate. before doing so i would like to outline my thinking on this issue and set out the principles that has guided my decision. in answering this, who will you caucus with question repeatedly with during the campaign, and i emphasize the word repeatedly, i established two basic criteria, that i wanted to maintain my independence as long and as thoroughly as possible, while at the same time being effective in my representation of maine. the first option i considered was whether i could literally go it alone. and not align myself with either party and operate entirely outside of the current partisan structure of the senate. although tempting in many ways, it is become apparent from extensive research into the senate rules and precedents as well as discussions with those familiar with the operations of the senate that this simply wouldn't be practical. and in fact, would severely compromise my ability to be effective on behalf of maine. the principle disadvantage of this go it alone approach
is saying the u.s. economy is strengthening. but he's cautioning that leaders must tackle the looming fiscal cliff. a conversation we can't get away from. speaking in missouri yesterday, bullard also says he doubts the central bank will extend a bond maturity extension program that expires at the end of the year. bullard is not currently a voting member, but he will ebb in 2013. and china's national congress continues with new leaders for the communist party set to be named later this morning. today a rising star said the party is moving towards requiring officials to their their assets. so an interesting piece in the chinese business press this morning. >> we have been talking about the fiscal cliff and -- >> we have? >> and yesterday somebody tweeted a new drinking game. every time they say fiscal cliff, you drink. they're right, but it's absolutely what matters. >> look at the stock market. did you see today what it's going to do? >> down again. >> it was down over 100 yesterday and it couldn't hold up. supposed to be up 70 when were watching yesterday morning. indicated down again. and i
the biggest impact in the u.s.? >> one of the most powerful campaigns was the trayvon martin case. a 17-year-old african-american, killed in florida, tragically. two weeks after the incident, there was no media coverage of all. a private injustice. the parents start a petition, and then it goes viral. the importance is not just the individual acts of arresting his killer in prosecuting him, but the public. the result, the awareness of the tragic situation of young african-americans not being treated fairly in the justice system or the "stand your ground" laws, where you can almost impunitively shoot someone. that is some of the really exciting things we see. >> in trayvon martin's case, clearly there was an impact, but they were not waiting. they were in there pretty soon, on the case. what i want to ask you -- do you find a difference in the way that companies -- you have a lot of petitions aimed at companies that do specific things. obviously, some have had more political implications. is there a difference in response between business institutions and political institutions? >> politician
in the way of success. on the day gerald ford became president of the u.s. at a time of national turmoil, this is what he said -- there is no way we can go forward except together. no way anyone can win except by serving the people's urgent needs. we cannot afford to go backward. we must go forward together. so said gerald ford. that is true today as it was back then. today the american people have many urgent needs. they need more jobs. they need economic certainty. they need opportunity and fairness. it is within our power to quickly address the urgent needs. it is one our power to forge an agreement now to middle-class families who can not afford a tax hike. we will ask the richest, most fortunate among us, pay a little extra to reduce the deficit and secure our economic future. it is in our power to push for an agreement that would protect certain tax deductions for families and businesses struggling. it is an hour powerful to forge an agreement to take a balanced approach to reduce spending. we could avert the fiscal cliff for 98% of american families in 97% of small businesses toda
